A police officer shot a teenager at near point-blank range, and at least 50 other people sustained injuries in protests on Tuesday in Hong Kong. The number of pro-democracy protesters hurt in clashes with police continues to rise as China celebrated 70 years of Communist Party rule. Protesters vandalized Chinese businesses and held up banners that read, “End dictatorial rule.” Hong Kong transitioned from British to Chinese rule in 1997.
